The Mandalorian Director Bryce Dallas Howard comments on the possibility of Grogu going on the dark side. The kid, also known as Baby Yoda and now Grogu, has captured the hearts of Star Wars fans around the world. However, the second season of the hit Disney + series has revealed some possible dark secrets about the character, which has led to fan theories about him moving on to the dark side. Would Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau really take the adorable little creature to the dark side?
In a new interview, Bryce Dallas Howard was asked if he would like to work on the second season of The Mandalorian. Howard returned to direct Chapter 11: The Heiress after filming an episode from last season. With that said, she knows a lot more about the future of the Disney + series than many other people, which means she couldn't say much when asked about the Grogu theories of the dark side. Howard had that to say.
"Well, I'm definitely not going to share any guesses because I know. But what I'm going to say is that for me the joy of working with Baby Yoda is that it's an intoxicatingly sweet, adorable creature, but you can Just play Note that often, right? That was a wonderful part of the journey for Mando and Baby in Season 1, but in Season 2 there's a chance for the character of Baby – who, by the way, isn't a baby that's full after human years middle-aged, but to understand, "OK, who is this being?" And it's not just binary. "
George Lucas introduced the world to the light and dark sides of power over 40 years ago. In the years since A New Hope was released, Star Wars fans have learned a lot about how the Force works and what it can do to people. It's not always as easy as someone on the light or dark side of power. Bryce Dallas Howard explains.
“Part of the power of what George [Lucas] created is that it deals with light and dark in a non-binary way, showing that the best of us have the ability to do terrible things. And the worst of us have the ability to do extraordinary things. That will of course play a thematic role in any Star Wars story. I'm all for characters that are concretized. "
While Bryce Dallas Howard couldn't say much about The Mandalorian and Grogu going to the dark side of the Force, she apparently hinted it could happen. Right now, no one really knows how season two ends, though we'll all know in less than 24 hours. With that said, it's hard to imagine Grogu getting to the bad guys this time, though anything can happen.
Star Wars fans are trying to find out if Din Djarin will successfully complete his mission to get Grogu from Moff Gideon. There are a lot of reports and rumors going around right now, but there are only a handful of people who know what Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau have planned for everyone.
